The Root Center

Our Mission

The Root Center is dedicated to the easement of the basic stressors of human life (providing food, water, shelter, energy and community) through the intelligent application of simple technologies, thereby building a cornerstone for a worldwide network of abundance to give every human being the time and dignity to lead fulfilling lives and elevate the quality of life for all.


We will integrate nature and technology, traditional and modern. In this process we will enable profound community development through a strong foundation of the basic infrastructure of community living. Community centers will be established to provide the tools and resources to explore humanity's creative potential.


Executive Summary

    The Root Center is a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization whose goal is to provide quality food for local food shelves while combining modern technologies to form  a completely self-sustainable farm.  The Root Center seeks to integrate green building through geodesic dome (and other) structures, clean energy through solar technology and vertical axis windmills (a revolutionary design that does not obstruct views and provides more energy), and organic farming in cooperation with WWOOF and other volunteer organizations.  The Root Center further seeks to integrate hydroponics, aquaponics, aeroponics, grow wheels and living machines in combination with innovative greenhouse designs.  We will work in cooperation with Todd Ecological to demonstrate how 100% of the farm’s waste can be processed into surplus energy through living machines, and aquaponics systems could create one of the first organic fish farms on the continent. This is just the beginning!  The Root Center’s growth will be in stages as follows:
